The nominees for this years MTV Movie and Television awards honoring the best in scripted and non-scripted content. Riley Keough and Sam Claflin are up for nomination for their roles in Daisy Jones & The Six. This marks the show’s first award nominations after the show launched just a month ago on Prime Video.

Keough is nominated for Best Performance in a Show while she and Claflin are nominated for Best Kiss.

Daisy Jones & The Six follows the life of Daisy Jones (Keough), an aspiring musician who sneaks into clubs on the Sunset Strip dreaming of being on stage. The book also chronicles the humble beginnings of The Six, led by Claflin’s Billy Dunne (originally dubbed The Dunne Brothers), who find their big break when Teddy Price (Tom Wright) discovers them playing clubs on the strip. Meanwhile, Daisy is desperately trying to find her own way.

Eventually, the band embarks on their sold-out Aurora arena tour, and by the time they reach the last show at Chicago’s Soldier Field, they are beyond repair. So, The Six decide to go their separate ways, and 20 years later, they finally tell their sides of the story on why exactly Daisy Jones & The Six broke up — including Billy and Daisy.

The series also stars Suki Waterhouse as Karen Sirko, Josh Whitehouse as Eddie Roundtree, Sebastian Chacon as Warren Rojas, Will Harrison as Graham Dunne, Camila Morrone as Camila Dunne, and Nabiyah Be as Simone Jackson.

Drew Barrymore will host the ceremony taking place live on May 7 at 8 p.m. ET/PT from Los Angeles’s Barker Hangar. Voting on this year’s awards is open through April 17 on vote.mtv.com.
